I just recently picked up a '90 Wrangler as a daily driver for my '90 300zx Twin Turbo. It's a blue/tan hardtop 6cyl auto w/88k miles. Previous owner replaced air filter, PCV valve, wheels/tires. I just re-did the front brakes and changed the oil, spark plugs and wires. It's running pretty well now, and I love it! Very fun car, should get me through Michigan winters just fine. I also can't get enough of the fact that it's so cheap to mod/fix... I replaced the rotors/pads/calipers with rebuilt ones all for about $100! On my TTZ, this would easily have costed hundreds upon hundreds more. I frequent the 300zx board (TwinTurbo.net) and was pointed this way when I bought my Wranger by another 300zx owner.
Here's a picture:
Anyway, with the general info out of the way, I have a few questions which you Jeep guys may be able to answer.
Loud windnoise! Starting at about ~30mph, the cabin whistles, sounds like it's coming from where the windshield meets the (hard)top, possibly some noise around the top of the driver/passenger windows. Is there a fix for this? A seal that needs to be replaced, etc.?
How are the carbeurators on these cars? Mine is... iffy. It seems to work fine, for the most part, but doesn't like to stay adjusted (cold idle, mostly). Floods rather easily. Good idea to replace it? How can I tell if I need a new one?
SOUND SYSTEM! I have an aftermarket CD player, but the TWO speakers just aren't going to cut it [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] What's a good, cheap route to go for a new sound system with some more bass that sounds good? I was thinking of a sound bar and a sub... Any suggestions appreciated.
Time for mods! I was thinking about getting something this bumper thumper from Performance Products.com, only I'd like a chrome or polished one (may look cool with my polished wheels/door handles). Here's a link:
Anyone know where I could get something like this, except chrome or polished that I could mount foglights on?
How about some chrome taillight guards?
Any recommendations for a nice, cheaper center console? I need cup holders! [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
Well that's pretty much all of my questions for now, but I'm sure you'll be hearing more from me... any good websites, links, distributors, etc. I can look at when buying stuff for my Jeep would be much appreciated.
